The ad will premiere during the game and has some distinct differences from the original trailer which dropped on Christmas. Adelaide Wilson, played by Lupita Nyong’o, narrates the newest TV spot.
The entire minute ad is scary all the way through as opposed to the original trailer which builds up suspense. Check out the trailer for yourself below.
Us stars Lupita Nyong’o (Black Panther), Winston Duke (Black Panther), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men, The Handmaid’s Tale) and Tim Heidecker (Ant-Man And The Wasp). Additionally, the film later announced other cast members. Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex, Madison Curry, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon and Duke Nicholson (Jack Nicholson’s grandson) will be joining the cast.
Also, the release for the highly-anticipated film was pushed back to build more anticipation and press.
Peele’s first film Get Out was a huge hit, getting a 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Jordan Peele also became the first African-American writer-director to earn a $100 million debut. Additionally, Peele earned the highest grossing debut project for a writer-director with an original screenplay.
Also, Peele won an Oscar for Writing (Original Screenplay) at last year’s ceremony.
Us premieres in theaters on March 22 after its launch at SXSW on March 8.
